Hey girls. I haven't been over here to the hair board for a while, but I am in need of a hair color change! I never know what to do with color and am looking for some advice. I have dark brown hair and fair skin with dark features, so I can't do anything too light. I want to do some kind of highlights or low lights, or whatever, but not necessarily all-over color. I'm also wanting something a little funky b/c i've had basic highlights and they never show up as much as I'd like. Here a couple pics to hopefully give an idea of what I have to work with...please ignore the fact that they are both very bad pictures!
Ur hair looks exactly like the color of mine and I have the hardest time when I need a change. Last time I colored I just had my stylist put in lighter brown highlights. But I get bored fast, so I ended up dying my hair back to it's original color because I hate the grow out.
Use suave naturals to wash hair daily.

My recommendation from years and years of coloring: don't do it. unless you are 100% certain, without a doubt, that you will be happier. It's a vicious cycle. I know it seems like people are just saying this, but really, I regret the first day so very long ago when I colored my hair in high school. Of course, there are lucky ones who are happy with their respective results, but just be careful. And ALWAYS go to a professional-- doing it yourself sets you up for disaster. Trust me.
